Milton Cooks Challenge: Summer Free for All
THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE BIRTHDAY CAKE
Chugga Chugga! Chew-Chew!
My little boy, like millions of others, loves Thomas! So for his birthday, mommy attempted to make him a Thomas cake.
It was my first time making a 3D cake and using fondant. I was quite proud of the results of my amateur efforts! It wasn’t perfect, but it resembled Thomas and saved me a lot of money. I also think homemade birthday cakes have more heart :)
Thomas’s face was made of fondant. I learned this on Youtube here:
The cake was a dense, white cake recipe, found here:
The icing recipe was a thick, decorator’s buttercream, found here:
The cake pan was the Wilton 3D Train Cake pan.
The wheels were good, old-fashioned Oreos :)
My son loved his cake! His smile was worth the hours of effort :)
